Under What Wilderness

by Hilary Clarcq

The title of this painting is a line from Ted Hughes’ poem, Thrushes. He’s observing (and envying) the way that animals seem to act with utter clarity, focus, and efficiency. The majority of humans are not this way: we have doubts, desires, and dreams which send us in different directions from one moment to the next. The poem describes these “distracting devils” as originating beneath the “wilderness” within our psyches.
